They substituted a lower lower model of poles!

I'd love to review some Leki Makalu trekking poles as were advertised but instead of being sent the mid range poles of the high strength series I was sent the lowest model Leki offers and told that color substitutions were in the conditions for the sale items.

A different color would be understandable but they sent me the cheapest model of Leki poles when it was clearly a set of Leki Makalu poles which feature Leki's strongest tubing(HTS 6.5 7075 Aluminum) and when I pointed this out they said I could return them for a store credit but made no offer to pay for return shipping or replace the poles with the higher model or refund my money. After doing business with Sierra Trading Post for years and years this will probably be my last purchase from them. They essentially pulled a "bait and switch" then blew me off when I called them on it.
